You never know where you’re gonna see design ideas. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few lattice oriented, criss cross designs in my June issue of House Beautiful. Granted, they were not interior design views of lattice but printed fashion on pants and as a design on an accessory lampshade. I get design ideas from all sorts of places and this would be one. However, we’ve already created a lattice design and updated it on our website in the popup to show the full view.
I like how the desk of annie includes a similar lattice pattern as a refreshing take on interior design.
Thinking unconventionally, lattice isn’t just for walls but can be used on ceilings as seen by this decorative painted example. I enjoyed doing this but boy was it a neck breaker. It would be a heck of a lot easier to simply cut, peel and stick Casart here rather than paint it. Thanks to this new technology it can be done now. One roll could probably accomplish this look.
Another criss cross type pattern that we offer is our faux padded harlequin in many color options.
The lattice design has gained popularity as a way to bring traditional outdoor concepts indoors while adding some graphic and textural appeal.
On a side note, I remember seeing similar lattice, trellis and cane patterns on fabric and wallpaper back in the 70’s. I believe it was popular before then, as William Morris had a trellis pattern back in the late 1800’s. If you’re into throwback interior design, here’s a contest to keep an eye on, The Mad Men Look sponsored by The Washington Post. Winners will be unveiled on July 24. Click the link to view the vintage 50’s and 60’s designs entries. Here are just a couple with reference to bold graphic patterns and cane furniture.
Here’s our previous post on getting that Mad Men look, reminiscent of Old Hollywood Style.
